What are the best wireless PC Gaming Headset?

The best wireless gaming headset provides you with something you can’t get from a wired headset; true freedom. The ability to move about your office, apartment, or attic without worrying about pesky wires shackling you to your PC while still delivering some of the best sound quality out there.

The two features that matter most in wireless gaming are battery life and wireless technology. Ideally, you want something that can go for a few days on a single charge. At a minimum, 30 hours of battery life is a decent enough starting point. But don’t be surprised if you see some premium headsets offering literally hundreds of hours of battery life. I’m glad I’m seeing more headsets featuring Bluetooth connectivity since it frees up a USB slot that would be taken up by a wireless dongle, and you can connect your phone to them.

HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless

The HyperX Cloud Alpha is perhaps the most praised thing to exist on this site. We all love it on team and now HyperX has cut the cord on its best pair of cans. The biggest drawcard for this headset is the new huge battery. This is offering up to 300 hour battery life while in wireless mode while still keeping the headset relatively light and comfortable. It’s the prettiest wireless pc gaming headset.

Razer Blackshark V2 Pro

Razer Blackshark V2 Pro

The wired Razer BlackShark V2 is our favourite gaming headset and the wireless ‘Pro’ version takes all of the best bits from those excellent headphones and snips off the cable. It previously sat in the number one spot but with the Cloud Alpha Wireless offering similarly excellent audio but with an absolutely massive battery, we gave it to HyperX cans. That said, the BlackShark V2 Pro is regularly discounted as it’s been around a little longer now, and with a big enough discount we’d definitely make the switch to Razer’s pair.

2. Connectivity: USB 2.4GHz wireless dongle

4. Features: Detachable micWeight : 320g

The TriForce driver design apes the fantastic HyperX Cloud Alpha headset and matches its fantastic audio delivery, helping knock the previous top gaming headphones off their perch. They feel detailed, the best wireless pc gaming headset, yet still rich enough to deliver an incredible experience in your chosen gameworld.

Razer Barracuda Pro Wireless

Razer Barracuda Pro Wireless

There are not many headsets as feature-packed as the Razer Barracuda Pro. It comes with beamforming mics so there’s no pesky mic in your face. Its hybrid active noise cancellation is good enough to become your main headphone at work, at home and everywhere in between. And, it comes with the ability to switch between two paired devices with the press of a button. However, we find that feature’s execution to be a little spotty.

SPECIFICATIONS

1. Interface: Bluetooth, 2.4GHz Wireless
2. Features: Active Noise Cancellation, Smartswitch, THX Spatial Audio, Beamforming Mic

We also find the audio quality to be excellent for general use but strangely not as good for gaming. Depending on how you like your audio, that might be positive or negative. Either way, the Barracuda Pro is one of the more comfortable headsets we’ve had the pleasure of testing.
